Giving away 20 free copies of Red Letter Revolution by Claiborne and Campolo

There are quite a few books I’m excited about that I plan to tell you about in the coming weeks. Some of these have been out for a while and others come out this Fall. One of these books, which is not available yet for purchase, is called Red Letter Revolution by Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo. I already have my copy of the book and I can tell you that you won’t be disappointed if you get your hands on a book.

Here’s a video about the book:

With that in mind, I’ve been given 20 copies to give away before you can even purchase the book in stores (comes out October 9th).

  • Steph Elizabeth

    Hi David Todd! I want a book too! Me!

  • Brian Scarborough

    It’s hard for to me to take Tony Campolo seriously on this. I saw him in person mocking the laying on of hands for healing, something that Jesus did throughout His ministry. How many of these so-called “red-letter” Christians are casting out demons and laying hands on the sick for healing, and actually believing that God will heal them. If you want to act like Jesus acted, then you cannot forget about His supernatural ministry. Nobody can mock the laying on of hands and then turn around and proclaim they are acting anything like Jesus.
